Bay Area man charged with DUI on three consecutive days

 Posted on June 09,2011 in DUI

A 50-year-old Mill Valley man was arrested on three consecutive days in three separate Bay Area cities for suspicion of DUI. The man appeared in Marin Superior Court Wednesday on two charges of DUI. The man asked for a court hearing to be scheduled on June 20. That is the day the man is scheduled to appear in San Francisco on a third California DUI charge. The DA argued against scheduling the hearing on the same day as the San Francisco hearing. The judge denied the request and scheduled the next appearance in Marin for June 21. The man had hoped to have the three cases processed on the same day.

The allegations initially arose last month when the Mill Valley man was arrested outside a San Rafael bank on suspicion of drunk driving and allegations of driving with a blood alcohol level of .01 while on probation. The very next day the man was stopped in San Francisco and again arrested on suspicion of DUI.

The third consecutive day took the man to Novato. A woman says the man was staggering near his car and asked for a ride to Burger King. The man reportedly got into his Volkswagen Beetle and drove off. A police officer says he saw the Beetle make a wide turn. The officer conducted a traffic stop. The man was arrested for DUI for the third consecutive day.

The man faces up to two years in jail on the current DUI charges. The accused is being held in the Marin County Jail with bail set at $50,000.
